Who made this?

Post by SchwarzStock »

I recently acquired this "cleaver". I was told it was an old butcher's tool. I cannot find any information on who made it it, the legible markings include a pig head, K&K and "Extra Quality 10". It has a interesting head with a "foot" that allows you to stand it on end.

Anyone have an idea about this thing?

Looks like you can chop through a cow’s leg bone with one blow.

I found a similar head from Ochsenkopf. It was on ebay but no more.
